After releasing “Suit & Tie“ — his first official single in YEARS — Justin Timberlake is wasting no time in shooting the music video.
Justin and his collaborator Jay-Z were spotted in L.A. on Friday (Jan 25) having a helluva good time on the set of the video wearing — you guessed it! — suits and ties. Well, tuxedos and bow-ties to be exact.
In most of the behind the scenes shots, you can see JT and JZ goofing around, as Timberlake runs around holding an umbrella while Jay-Z laughs at him. The man behind them, however, was obviously NOT in on the joke, as evidenced by the serious look on his face:
Meanwhile, “Suit & Tie” — produced by Timberlake’s longtime producer Timbaland — is currently the #4 record in the country, after skyrocketing from #84 on the Billboard Hot 100.
The track serves as the first offering from Justin’s ‘The 20/20 Experience album’ — his first in seven years — and the video is expected to debut before the album hits stores on March 19th.
During the shoot, Justin and Jay-Z took a quick break to watch the Brooklyn Nets take on the Memphis Grizzlies. Jay-Z, a Brooklyn native, is a minority owner of the Nets, while Justin, a native of Memphis, is a minority owner of the Grizzlies.
